This is a live, interactive, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom. See our registration policies here

No tricks, just treats! Say yes to your sweet tooth and make your home smell like Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. You will bake Spiderweb Cupcakes that will take you to the dark side (of chocolate). You will make homemade candy from scratch too—nutty matcha green tea peanut butter cups and a legion of Fig Spiders and Ghosts.

This is a family-friendly cooking class, so young kids are welcome to participate with an adult as well as teenagers who like to tinker in the kitchen on their own! If you are a kid at heart and want to make your own sweets this year, join us! Plan on having a spooky good time, no matter your age. Costume optional, but recommended.

Annelies Zijderveld believes cooking should be fun and flavorful, (and still can’t quite get over the amazing abundance of fresh produce and ingredients available to us in the Bay area). With a master’s in intercultural studies and a Mexican-Bolivian-Dutch heritage, she’s keen on finding the points of intersection around the table. Her food writing has recently appeared in Edible East Bay, The Kitchn, and San Francisco Classical Voice. Her online cooking journal, explores creative and doable ways for all trying to eat more vegetables. Find her online at Instagram @anneliesz.
